Thank you for making our trek wonderful. This 4 days trek far exceeded my high expectations. Not only the itineraries were breathtaking, but the service and assistance provided were excellent. It enables us to relax and enjoy every aspect of this trek. You connect us with Nepal, It seemed like we were being taken around by a local friend, giving us a fantastic cultural experiences. You do a wonderful job of caring your hikers. We highly recommend to others.

Jochen Keil:

You want to hike with a friend? Then go with these guys! It's like hiking with a friend, but a friend who knows the people, the mountains and the culture. Don't make the mistake of going alone, even if you are fit and experienced. A local guide will improve your experience by telling you the proper names of the mountains, answering your questions about the culture and how the people live here. For an easy-going, flexible and resilient guide go with these guys. You won't be disappointed, I can tell you by heart, after I spent more then three weeks in Nepal only accompanied by my awesome guide, you'll have a great time and wonderful memories!

Alice Macrae:
